OK, Eric. I retract my label of you being a complete idiot. How about a partial idiot?

all right. I guess if I have to.

Ok. Ok. Here it goes.

Eric. I'm sorrrr.... I'm sorrr.... I'm "soory"!
How's that?
What about: I "aprologize"?<giggle!>

Ok. Seriously.

Eric, I retract my label of you being a "complete idiot". I would hope
in the future that you would think more about what I am saying
(and hopefully, what I "mean" by what I'm saying.).

What's this?

Well, well, well. Looks like the pre-1967 "Vegan Mafia"TM's ganging-up on me, yet again.
How typical! (S&H said this would happen.)

It's complicated, but it's a topic that I'm deeply interested in. I believe that you and I have a lot

There's other stuff(in varying degrees), but that's something.

I don't post alot of stuff that I believe you're really interested-in, anyway.

Question: If someone at Newton had had an evil AR-15 in the trunk of their car, would they have had time to get it?

Answer: "Possibly". Which is a lot better than nothing.

https://www.strategypage.com/htmw/ht.../20070629.aspx

In 1995, the census data showed 11.2 million people said they served during the Vietnam war period. But only nine million American actually served in the armed forces during the official Vietnam war period (1964-1975, most U.S. troops were out of Vietnam by 1972, and the big build up didn't begin until 1965)... The census estimated that, by 1995, only 63 percent of Vietnam veterans were still alive... Someone is apparently lying to the census...

Another survey, in 2000, showed the number of people claiming Vietnam era service had grown to nearly fifteen million. No doubt, it probably still grows...

...and then wait for the excuses about how he doesn't remember blah, blah, blah followed by a long silence. Or maybe, he'll finally tell us about his time in the Underwater Balloon Corps before supposedly using his trust fund money to move to the Dakota apartments.

Okay clown, lets add a couple more challenges to you. If history is any guide, they'll also just go unanswered

o Please explain the ONE major mass shooting by a revolver and how it ended so differently than Newtown -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio_de_...chool_shooting

- you know, targets actually having time to escape, the shooter having to go wondering for more targets, and the police getting there in time to confront the shooter. I guess it was that he was Brazilian and had to do a Samba between each round, hey?

o go ahead and do a video of you getting 100 shots off on a revolver with an average 3-20 seconds per shot. I want the evidence of the spread and willing to accept a barn door but dirt shots don't count. You do know how to use a camera; I'm sure someone in da Park has a cell phone with one. I hope you have that govt provided health insurance for any leg wounds that might be one way for you, Copperhead and Justin to finally get a room together.

o And of course, these new challenges are tied to that still unanswered one of your providing any actual proof of your boasts of military background -

-Newton was nothing like Rio. At Newton, the killer went to small classes, and killed them as they obediently waited for him. Different circumstances, different weapons.

I think Justin has already tried to explain to PW that different weapons have different charcteristics. One is that revolvers are far less likley to jam than self-loaders. At Newton, the killer's weapon jammed (Justin already covered this). That doesn't happen very often with a revolver.

At Rio, the killers weapon might have jammed, and more might have escaped, not fewer.

Oh. School shootings:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pearl_High_School_shooting

The school's assistant principal, Joel Myrick, retrieved a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol from his truck and, spotting him near the parking lot, shouted for Woodham to stop. Woodham instead got into his mother's car and tried to escape. Myrick, a U.S. Army Reserve commander, detained Woodham until authorities arrived...

http://www.oredigger.net/satire/10-s...y-weapons.html

Though there have been a few incidents of shootings that were shortened by the presence of other students or teachers who carried guns, this is the first reported case where they prevented a tragedy from occurring at all...

That was the point numbnut.

It still comes down to a person being able to inflict as much damage with a revolver as with an AR. Nearly anyone can figure this out except for macho gun numbnuts. And since you've decided to join them, the challenge still remains -

o go ahead and do a video of you getting 100 shots off on a revolver with an average 3-20 seconds per shot. I want the evidence of the spread and willing to accept a barn door but dirt shots don't count. You do know how to use a camera; I'm sure someone in da Park has a cell phone with one. I hope you have that govt provided health insurance for any leg wounds that might be one way for you, Copperhead and Justin to finally get a room together.
I'm still waiting for the video. You would think with all the prowess you all claim on weaponry that at least one of you could operate a cell phone camera.

Really, do you how many youtube videos are posted every day? 5 year olds do it. So, if youre not posting a video, I doubt it has something to do with camera skills. Now what could it be?

I can see you posting a video of attempting and coming perhaps close, but not even trying? Well that undermines your credibility on EVERYTHING - military or otherwise, Slick.

-So... I pointed out that in some circumstances that a guy with a revolver might wreak more havoc as with an automatic pistol, as in a case where pumping out more than 6 rounds at a shot is not the key; accuracy and reliability is. But PW is still getting his panties in an uproar over one quality of a weapon. He's either not paying attention, or this is a subterfuge to go after revolvers as well, which was the objective of the gun grabbers back in the 1970s.

Is that his real objective?

Every one of those responses is pathetic, even for you.

Post a video to show how a revolver has some mysterious means for potential more mass killing than an AR. What a joke.

Okay, so you can't afford a cell phone with a video camera. You can't beg borrow or steal one for an under 5 minute clip??? Pathetic excuse.

And the publically available information (that you might have used to establish your supposed identity here)??? We've been through that enough to make it one of your zombies -
http://www.fourthturning.com/forum/s...072#post449072

Like I said, pathetic. Now go back to your hole.

-Irrelevant. As many people have pointed out, the mass murderer failed to kill as many people as he wanted too because his weapon jammed. Under the circumstances under which the mass murder occurred, he would have been better off with revolvers, unless PW has found a way to make an AR as reliable as a revolver. When he does, he can post it.

I realize this might be a little too far advance for you, but take it down to Shakin Puddin's shake and she if see can work it out for you.

Jam or no jam, shooter fired x bullets in y seconds. I don't think you can duplicate that with a revolver.

I've given you what today is a relatively short easy way to prove otherwise (there's this thing called youtube, for example).

You're not taking me up on it and instead posting pathetic excuses just shows you're full of horseshit.

So what else is new?

-It's clear from the narrative that it wasn't necessary for him to fire x bullets in y seconds to do what he did. What he needed was a weapon that didn't jam.

That makes absolutely no logical sense - it's backwards.

His gun (supposedly) jammed and yet the mass killings still happened - the jam was meaningless to the outcome.

As to the x bullets and y seconds, your 'logic' brings you to he didn't need bullets and if he had taken a year he would still have the same result.

You really can't be this stupid.

-PW seems to be missing the key point. We've tried to show that there are many different scenarios, with many different outcomes, with different types of weapons. Different weapons have different advantages and disadvantages. If your weapon jams, and a lot of people escape, it doesn't matter how many half-assed shots you could have got off while you're trying to clear the jam. That's why some escaped in some of the other mentioned scenarios.

Whatever.

Maybe before you break into an ongoing conversation with your 'brilliance,' you might actually want to think first about what is being discussed.

The issue was about limiting the number of rounds a civilian gun can hold. Justin made the point that a revolver could have fired the same number of shots, doing the same level of damage and in the same amount of time as the AR used at Sandy Hook.

Now that you understand that (I have to assume your capable), you can either shut up (and well assume you agree Justin is an idiot) or you can post the video supporting Justins assertion (and show Im an idiot).

Im sure a big-time military guy like yourself has 30 or so speedloaders sitting around. It must be the lack of access to a video camera.

No. The real point is whether limiting the number of rounds in a magazine will have any appreciable effect on preventing mass murders. The answer is "no".

The key here is a variety of factors of which rate of fire is just one. Semi-automatics usually have higher rates of jamming than revolvers, and the higher the magazine capacity, the higher the rate of jam, which is why, when using an M16/M4, you often put only 28 or 29 rounds in a 30 round magazine.

-Yes, he did. And yet, PW keeps humping this.

Based on what, your farting into the wind?

These are all limiting factors - that means they are ALL limiting factors. A gun that can only fire 6 rounds per load is more limited than a gun with a higher capacity. That's a limit I would like to see imposed. If you gun nuts want to limit ARs because they jam on you, I'm way okay with that as well. Another reason I wanted the video is to see your human jamming' as you try to cycle through 30 fastloaders - nothing like a misdirected bullet in the old brain pan to 'jam' one up.

When we get to a certain age, we've become pretty adept at having to lower ourselves so that we can talk to people like you. It's much like how a wise adult will take a knee to talk to a child. For others, sometimes we have to talk real slow in a language that they might understand. Another reason for the video so I wouldnt force you into more big words.

Still waiting for the video.

No. And for some people, that doesn't matter. We all know what the real objective is.

That is conjecture AND, more importantly, not what the challenge was that you butted into.

The challenge was shooting around 150 rounds with a revolver in the same time as the AR used in Sandy Hook. You can either agree that is not going to ever happen or you can post the video showing otherwise.

Why is that so hard for you to understand? It may be because you really are too stupid to grasp it or it may be that your not man enough to admit when you're wrong. Which is it?

Post all the attempts at character assassination and other horseshit you want; none of that meets the original challenge - it just shows that the question regarding you is either stupidity or cowardness. I think its most likely a combo.

...everyone else wanted him to explain how a 10 round limit on magazines would have saved them. PW hasn't, because he can't.

Now, if one of the teachers had had a concealed carry, you can bet, that with the warning those teachers had, that a few of those cute faces would have been saved.

Period.

You butted in at the point of the challenge and specifically sided with Justin and Copperhead on that point.

If you want to concede that I'm right about a revolver being less able to spray bullets, we might have a starting point to get back to the larger issue. We could also get there by you proving me wrong with that video. If you refuse to do either, why should I bother trying to have a dialogue with you when you are clearly not going to make any attempt at being an honest person???

-No, their point (if PW would go back and check), was that a revolver could kill a bunch of unarmed children and schoolteachers hiding in their classrooms as they waited for the cops to show up quickly enough.

Maybe PW should try something new: Debating people's actual, relevant points.
